About Me

I'm Andrew, welcome to my site! I'm currently employed by the NHS as a 'Clinical Technologist', which for me means Computer Scientist. This is my day job and I enjoy working at the intersection of computing & healthcare.

Alognside my day job, I'm a graduate research student at the University of York's department of Computer Science, something I am able to do due to the flexibility of my role in the NHS. My research surrounds Human-Computer-Interaction in Medical Software / Healthcare.
